Some lakes south of Hutch

4 posts in this topic

I dont think this was the right posting area but this was as close as I could find. I was wondering about some lakes south of hutch called Allie and Preston. I live in Shakopee it looks like Hwy 212 will take me through Glencoe and into the general area. From there Im not quite sure and am still studying the Mn state map. These lakes are not very big and appear to be about 12 feet deep. Anyway I was just wondering about general species activity and some insight on weather it's worth the drive for some late afternoon and night action. Thanks.

I live near both lakes in question. I have fished preston once,this winter. I caught afew. They were not huge. But the action was not bad! 6 bites 4 fish. hour and a half on ice. Good luck!

Was on Preston for most of the day Saturday, fished several different areas and caught nothing bigger than 11". Caught a bunch, but nothing worth keeping.

Thanks big Ds. Ive been waiting along time for a response. It sounds pretty slow. I never made it out there any way but lake allie sounded like a decent little walleye lake but maybe ill try the kandiyohias. Or maybe head more north to some prime waters.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
